Baltimore Orioles Tickets
The Baltimore Orioles began as the Milwaukee Brewers in 1901, as one of the American Leagues charter franchises. In 1954, the Brewers moved to Baltimore, Maryland, and were promptly renamed the Orioles. The Orioles played in Memorial Stadium from 1954 until 1991 but have enjoyed a new home at Camden Yards since 1992. The Orioles won six American League pennants and three World Series Championships, while Brooks Robinson, Frank Robinson, Cal Ripken, Jr., and Boog Powell have all won Most Valuable Player honors for the team. In 1995, Cal Ripken became the new "Iron Man" of baseball when he beat Lou Gehrigs record for consecutive games played.
Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Home to the Baltimore Orioles
Oriole Park at Camden Yards, or simply Camden Yards, is home to the AL East division team , the Baltimore Orioles. Camden Yards is the first retro-style baseball park in America and has influenced other parks with a similar retro style. As one of the most highly regarded ballparks in baseball, Camden Yards has won praise for its feel and its look. A statue of Babe Ruth stands outside the park. Camden Yards incorporates the B&O Warehouse into the stadium in right field. Camden Yards has housed the Orioles since 1992.
Baltimore Orioles and the American League East
The Baltimore Orioles have enjoyed many winning seasons in the American League East, a competitive division that includes the Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees, Tampa Bay Rays, and Toronto Blue Jays. The Os won division titles from 1969 through 1971 and in 1973, 1974, 1979, 1983, and 1997. The Orioles also have seven AL pennants to their credit and a total of three World Series championships. They harbor a deep-seated rivalry with the New York Yankees. In fact, the Orioles frequently open their home season against New York with a highly anticipated, well-attended afternoon game.
Baltimore Orioles 2012 Team Outlook
The Orioles finished their 14th consecutive losing season in 2011, winning just 69 games all year. At the end of the season, Orioles General Manager Andy MacPhail decided not to renew his contract, and the Orioles were embarrassed by having both of their top candidates for successor, Jerry Dipoto and Tony LaCava, turn down the position. Eventually, Dan Duquette, the former General Manager of the Boston Red Sox, accepted the post. Duquette has had a relatively quiet off-season, eschewing the top free-agents and making some low-key signings instead. He has been active in the international market by signing two pitchers from Asia: Tsuyoshi Wada and Wei-Yen Chen. However, Duquette will be counting on some of the Orioles' young pitching talent, including Brian Matusz, Zach Britton, and Jake Arrieta, to make some significant progress in 2012. Without big improvements in the starting rotation, the Orioles will likely have another losing season this year.
